Chapman signed with Pivot Factory Racing in 2017 and had his best World Cup season to date. Rupert started riding at the age of 10 with friends from school and soo discovered it was what he loved. It wasn't long before he started racing and has been doing so ever since! Rupert has raced multiple disciplines but enjoys downhill the most. He says, "the whole set up with big pits, teams, and everything else - it feels like Formula 1!"If you run into Chapman, you always know you are in for a killer time.
